No punches as Holyfield, Tyson meet on "Oprah'
CHICAGO - No punches were thrown. And neither bit off the other's ear.
Mutual praise and admiration dominated during a face-to-face meeting Friday between former world champion boxers Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield on a live episode of ""The Oprah Winfrey Show.'
On June 28, 1997, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Tyson was disqualified after biting off part of Holyfield's right ear during their WBA heavyweight title fight.
A respectful Tyson shook hands with his former rival several times during their encounter Friday - which he said was his first chance to speak at length with Holyfield since the ear chomp that made worldwide headlines.
Judge extends probation for Lindsay Lohan
LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan is getting another chance.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel granted a request by the 23-year-old actress to extend her three-year probation another year, but the district attorney warned jail time would be sought if Lohan stumbled again. Lohan was ordered to appear in court Friday after her substance abuse treatment program notified the court she was missing meetings.
Lohan was placed on probation in 2007 after she pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of drunken driving and one count of reckless driving. Lohan has now escaped further punishment three times after the program notified the court she violated rules.
